Welcome to BSB

May we wish you all a very warm welcome to our school for what we hope will be a happy and successful partnership with The British School of Barcelona.

Headteacher's Welcome

“Since its very foundation in 1958, The British School of Barcelona has been a great independent school, characterised by the pursuit of academic excellence and outstanding care for all children and young people.

Our pupils and students are encouraged to become global citizens who are self-confident about their beliefs and opinions, and yet flexible enough to bridge the gap between different cultures.

We emphasise effective learning and an all-round education that goes well beyond examinations. In addition to academic lessons, our pupils engage in a variety of activities ranging from sports to art, music, drama, languages, school clubs and community work.

While The British School of Barcelona follows the English National Curriculum as an educational establishment fully accredited by the British and Spanish Governments, we welcome boys and girls of nearly 50 different nationalities who will ultimately obtain places at leading universities in the United Kingdom, Spain and all over the world.

I am proud to lead such a dynamic, internationally-minded school community where pupils are prepared for a successful future by being empowered to stand on their own two feet, make decisions while always remembering that many others are not as fortunate.”
